Vikadakumaran Review: An entertainer with equal dose of humour and thrill
After the hugely successful ‘Kattappanayile Rithwik Roshan’, Vishnu Unnikrishnan and Dharmajan Bolgatty are back with a comedy-thriller. Their latest outing ‘Vikadakumaran’ is directed by Boban Samuel, who has made movies like ‘Janapriyan’ and ‘Romans’. Let’s jump straight to the review.
Vikadakumaran has Vishnu Unnikrishnan playing Binu, an advocate while Dharmajan plays his friend Mani, who works a clerk in the district court. While Binu is content with taking up petty cases, his life takes a topsy-turvy once he lands on a murder case. Sukumaran, a home guard is killed under mysterious circumstances and the case eventually reaches Binu. From the point, the movie follows how Binu tries to solve the case and emerge victorious.
Vishnu Unnikrishnan has given a slightly more matured performance this time and the confidence that he earned with ‘Kattappanayile Rithwik Roshan’ is very evident on screen. Dharmajan as his sidekick and ‘Kattu’ fame Manasa Radhakrishnan have done their roles well. Jinu Joseph is another notable performer in the movie.
YV Rajesh has scripted Vikadakumaran as a neat comedy thriller with ample space for humour and thrilling elements. Indrans, who got the 2017 Kerala State Award for best actor, has played a noteworthy role as home gaurd Sukumaran. Technically, Vikadakumaran is a good movie with fine visuals by Ajay David and pleasant music by Rahul Raj.
Overall, Vikadakumaran is definitely worth a watch for its humour and thrills. Families will have a good time watching this movie from theatres during this Easter holidays.
